My dear english speaking friends!

Please watch my video with english subtitels to get an impression what project I’m working on:

This is a platform for a fundraising campaign I started. In 2011, I wrote a Social/Science Fiction novel about a holistically sustainable future society which I finished in 2012. After my graduation in a Master of Economics and Social Design, I would like to edit the novel because a lot of things changed my idea of how such a future society could look like - and what great opportunities it could have.

Thus I'm currently writing a second version of my utopian novel, using a lot of knowledge about alternative living and ways to organize society and my own experiences with alternative life styles which I gained over the last years. Almost twenty people support me financially with that since January.

More about my novel

 

This is a provisional book cover, illustrated by myself.

Its elements point to various aspects and topics of the novel.

Below you find a reading sample of my novel in English. I translated the abstract and first pages of the book for you. I'm sorry that it's only an old version of the text.

Hopefully there will be an english translation of the whole text one day ;)

About the campaign

Why?

To fundraise a kind of basic income for utopian knowledge work on the novel - and to try out new forms of financing arts and science.

Target

between 200 € to 600 € monthly: support for living costs

200 € would help for basic needs

600 € would make possible research trips and further education

It can't be calculated more precisely because costs also depend on how much it will be possible to reduce expenses by living in community, to travel by using private lifts etc.

Duration

approx. 1 year (January 2018 - December 2018)

The idea

The donation campaign is just one "piece of puzzle" in a bigger experiment of living economic and social change: it's also about reducing living costs by sharing food and rent by living together (Cusanus students community) and engage oneself in care and community (university campus) work, practice new life styles like meditation and reducing (gainful) employment to side jobs. One focus is also on dealing with life time in a new, de-economized manner.
